Tell Ghost in the Shell who you are at IAmMajor.me
Ghost In the Sheil‘s official Twitter just tweeted out a new video for fans, along with a viral website. The video shows footage from the film, with the lines, “I am hunted. I am the hunter. I am fearless. I am coming for them. I am Major.” You can go to a new website, IAmMajor.me, and upload who you are along with your picture to post on your social media accounts. You can also scroll down here to watch three new videos posted by Paramount Pictures, including one where Scarlett Johansson talks about who Major is.
As those of you familiar with the anime, the manga and the rest of the vast mythology of the series know, the main character is usually known as Major Motoko Kusanagi. In the film, however, the character is simply known as Major. Check out the tweet below.
The official Facebook page for the film also posted a video with more footage with the lines, “I am coming for you. I am strong. I am fearless. I am Major.”
The film is based on the manga by Masamune Shirow (first published in 1989) and the resulting 1995 anime (with some elements from the 2004 sort-of sequel Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence). If you’re not familiar, it’s the story of the cyber terrorism unit set in the future known as Section 9. In this future, most people have some sort of cybernetic enhancements, but Major has a fully cyborg body. Section 9 fights a new enemy as Major tries to come to terms with her humanity.
Here is the official synopsis: “Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.”
Ghost in the Shell will hit theaters on March 31, 2017. The film stars Johansson, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, Pilou Asbæk, Kaori Momoi, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Yutaka Izumihara, Tuwanda Manyimo and Rila Fukushima.
